It’s rare for both teams to be firing heading into their traditional Anzac Day blockbuster. But after Essendon moved to 4-2 with a thrilling win over Adelaide, and Collingwood rediscovered their spark in an impressive win against Port Adelaide, this shapes as a match worthy of the day. By far Essendon’s biggest test yet, despite the merits of winning at the Adelaide Oval just two weeks after they were humbled at the same venue. If the Bombers can take down the reigning premiers, fans will be rejoicing and genuinely believing this is the year they could finally win their first final since 2004. Collingwood are coming off their most convincing win of the season, a performance that would have struck fear into the rest of the competition.


TIP: Collingwood by 10 points, Jamie Elliott two or more goals
